Hi everyone

Is there some information what is the best way to import objects from vectorworks 2011
I Was trying to import a DXF object but it works not ik

The strange thing is that when I export a 3d model tot a DXF extension and I import it back in LC the DXF model is oke.

So what are these DXF setting when you Export a .X Model to DXF model in Lightconverse.

Is it a good idee to export the good working DXF Models (what i have import from VW2011) to .X models in Lightconverse?

My method is...

1) Export model to STL format in VW.
The object export in STL format is converted into polygon mesh by all means.

2) Import model of STL format in Blender.
"blender" is free of charge.

3) Export model to DirectX format in Blender.
It is necessary that invalidate a "FLIP Z" option.

best regards.

.DXF format is common for draft CAD only, small objects.
Also, unfortunately, VW has very bad .DXF generation.

You should use native .X format for LIGHTCONVERSE for the best results.

If you still like .DXF - use third party software (not CAD) as proposed.
